The British Council is looking for UK universities interested to pursue TNE partnerships in the Philippines.

A series of activities conducted in 2022-2023 served as preliminary undertakings towards the establishment of formal TNE partnerships between universities. This includes knowledge sharing sessions about TNE, its different models and case studies in the UK to name a few. Moreover, through a mission visit in the UK, the Philippine universities were introduced to the UK higher education sector, and joined dialogues with UUKi, UK-ASEAN Business Council, QAA, Department for Education, Department for International Trade, UK ENIC, Office for Students, Advance HE, among others.

We aim to showcase the diversity of TNE models in the UK and possible subject specialisms to introduce in the Philippines. While general subject areas for the TNE have been identified, the goal of the programme is to introduce niche, specialist programmes that are unavailable or not widely available in the country.

Note that the inclusion of UK universities in this call is not an expression of partnership commitment. Universities that convey their interest will be included in the preliminary activities including knowledge sharing sessions and initial partnership discussions. A separate process will be undertaken in the selection of TNE partners.

We are looking for UK universities interested to co-develop UK-Philippine postgraduate degrees with the following universities:



Subject area for TNE

Batangas State University

Engineering and health sciences

Central Mindanao University

Biology, Biotechnology

Mariano Marcos State University

Information technology

Universities located in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are highly encouraged to express interest for TNE partnership.
